The all-new 2018 Audi R8. Ready, set, thrill.​

The all-new Audi R8

Thrilling performance. Breathtaking handling. Redesigned from the ground up, the second generation all-new R8 has arrived. A high-revving 5.2-litre V10. Lightweight Audi Space Frame® technology. And an S tronic® transmission capable of gear changes within hundredths of a second. No model bearing the four Audi rings comes closer to giving you the adrenalin rush of the track in a series production vehicle.

R8 V10 - The Audi R8 V10 has transformed.

It’s lighter and flatter, with a more muscular stance than its predecessor. The naturally aspirated V10 engine offers even more power and torque than before, with 540PS and 540 Nm of torque. As a result, it can sprint to 62mph in 3.5 seconds, before powering on to a top speed of 198mph.*

Inside, you’ll find a high level of standard equipment. MMI Navigation plus with Audi Connect. Audi Drive Select, enabling you to tailor the ride to suit you. And the Audi Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the traditional dashboard with a stunning all-digital display.

R8 V10 plus - Performance to the extreme.

Breathtaking: with 610PS and maximum torque of 560 Nm, the all-new R8 V10 plus accelerates from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds. Making it not just the fastest Audi production car in history, but also the first to reach 205mph. Where legal, of course.

R8 interior - Everything focused on the driver.

With its monoposto cockpit design, it’s no coincidence that, on climbing inside the all-new R8, you get the feeling of being behind the wheel of a racecar.

Engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes can all be controlled from the buttons on the R8 performance steering wheel. The interior boasts refined materials, precise workmanship and innovative technologies. And the new, fully customisable Audi Virtual Cockpit puts all the information you need directly in front you.
